Separation of Church and State

Separation of Church and State

I know from the amount of response I get to my articles that
folk think I focus on political issues. However my interest is
not only toward politics but also biblical issues. I love the
Word of God and I do not pretend to have a monopoly on truth, but
I do love to research and study the Bible. And if I was to count
the numerous hours I spend in that endeavor each week it would
probably fill much of my working week.

To this end I want to make one thing clear without any apology
whatsoever, that the debate concerning the separation of church
and state is a non issue, because there is no such thing. A
man’s philosophy or persuasion will undeniably affect his
dealings. It is to this end that I am constantly challenged. The
only way to change politics is not to vote with our pockets but
with our convictions. Sadly though, people today do not even know
what convictions are, let alone live by them resolutely, in order
to influence the direction of their peers and neighbours in this
Godless, greed driven modern society.

This nation of Australia has a definite problem with ethics
and integrity, and despite contrary voices, this is true without
a doubt. There is not a day goes by that one politician or
another or some judge or policeman or doctor or professional
lawyer is not being investigated by some agency for dishonesty,
fraud or deviate behaviour.

The crazy part about all this is that the Church itself sits
back and takes comfort in the fact that the ungodly behaviour of
these perverts and professional parasites is being brought to
justice. But they never ever stop to ask the question as to who
is it that tries and judges them. It certainly is not the
defenders of truth and honour but the same ungodly deviates of
their own judiciary to which they belong. Many of these verbalize
and unashamedly demonstrate the same corrupt behaviour, but as
yet have not been exposed or made accountable for it.

How ridiculous, that the only group of people on earth that
can exemplify truth and justice in a Godly manner and in a truly
equitable Biblical way are those who adhere to the very fountain
of Biblical truth itself. These are the God fearing, Bible
believing, saintly living, wise representative leaders and
members of the church of Jesus Christ. How can the sinner judge
the sinner when he is living in exactly the same cesspool of
iniquity that the one who stands before him is involved in? This
is the folly of all follies!

The Bible alone is the benchmark of truth. Whether we like it
or not, the stupidity of our government politicians who are the
producers of the pigswill we call law and government policy
simply refills the pork barrel of the greedy. This ensures the
longevity of those with the power and clout to carry on their
warped and diabolic charade.

 

This is just a blight on our society. They have passed the
legislation that prosecutes us if we stand up against and voice
opposition to the cancer of extreme fundamentalist ideology of
murder and terror which divides our ethnic heritage, and yet with
the same process they sanction and protect those whom they say
are vilified as a result of it.

But I guess we can not expect any thing better from the
imbecilic insanity of political correctness gone mad. This
insanity that we see instituted by our keepers is to express
their innate hidden desire for their agenda of totalitarianism to
dictate the future of the less fortunate. Christian leaders and
their so-called churches in revival that are large enough to
raise a voice against this, are so busy promoting themselves and
their empires they don’t even see the Trojan horse at the
gate.

Let’s face it, the Church in this nation and the west is
so divided, compromised and confused it has absolutely no voice
whatsoever to influence change. The Church alone is the
conscience of a nation, yet disgracefully it is so caught up in
the same iniquitous indulgence as the world it is supposed to
challenge and confront. It embraces an agenda of prosperity and
self aggrandizement and no longer can it even identify or
distinguish truth from heresy.

Lies from the western leaders, Blair, Bush, Howard and the
likes are none the less dishonest and God states liars will have
no part in His kingdom. But today we justify liars and their
lies; we laugh and joke at their ability to deceive the
opposition, outsmarting them with cunning and camouflage. We
dress the wolves in Grandma’s clothing justifying their
actions as needful strategy to lure the innocent public like Red
Riding Hood to the slaughter. The more we wrap the lies with
aesthetic enticement, the more effective we consider its power
and thus then the more we can command and charge for our
marketing skill and genius.

What have we become? What a sad day that reality is no longer
of any value but the more plausible the lie the greater we are
rewarded. A politician markets himself not with his character but
with his charisma. His ability to sway his followers is all
important so he will paint and polish his presentation till he
can manipulate his policies to an acceptable level by covering
the negatives and elaborating the positives.

We call it political expediency or label it national security
and feed it to the citizenry at large. It is no different than
American fast food chains creating slogans that titillate the
unsuspecting public with promises of healthy satisfaction while
all the time knowing that what is sold is not what is promised.
In fact in most cases it is anything but what is promised, where
the product is misrepresented so blatantly the reality is they
are poisoning the innocent citizen who is led by his eyes more
than his head. But that is what we have now accepted as the norm
as no one protested and questioned the integrity of western
capitalist attitudes.

Who would have thought that good, honest, Christian western
society would betray its people by allowing truth to be
sacrificed on an altar of material convenience? Who cares if we
poison the public or fleece the poor? We are making money and
keeping folk employed. It matters not that the fast food garbage
chains mete out poison at the trough of the unsuspecting. They do
not care, nor do they respect the resulting consequences on our
children or our society. Just keep the money rolling in and keep
the placebo rolling out.

The greater the lie the greater its allurement, and ultimately
the greater the trap. No matter - we wont be here for more than
seventy years so our children and their children can just right
our selfish wrongs……. who cares? Hiding or
misrepresenting the truth does not change anything. It is still
lies and deceit, and I ask why can’t the average man, even
the church member see it.

We do exactly the same inside the church. We avoid the
controversial and negative. We cover and side step anything
contentious, calling it being seeker-sensitive or community
conscious. What rot and heresy, it is nothing short of compromise
and worldliness - what the scripture calls turning the truth into
a lie. When will we accept the truth of the Word of God at the
expense of our politically correct humanistic pride and read it
as it is written? To be at peace with the world is to become an
enemy of God. Since when have we been commissioned into this
world to win favour and respect from a world that despises
goodness and godliness?

We need a good dose of Biblical humility through which we may
come to a knowledge of the truth as God sees it and then
perchance we may even realize God knows a little more about human
nature with all its manipulation and deceptive practice than we
give Him credit for. The book of Jude explains God’s view
of earthly pride in all its egotistical religious garb. Besides,
let’s not forget the greatest way to appeal to human nature
in order to capture its attention to deceive, is to dress what is
unacceptable in religious facade or presentation. Then people
will embrace it as acceptable.

Jude states …… "Dear friends, since I
am eager to begin a letter to you on the subject of our common
salvation, I find myself constrained to write and cheer you on to
the vigorous defence of the faith delivered to all God’s
people. For certain persons have crept in unnoticed - men spoken
of in ancient writings as pre-destined to this condemnation -
ungodly men, who pervert the grace of our God into an excuse for
immorality, and disown Jesus Christ, our only Sovereign and Lord.
I desire to remind you, although the whole matter is already
familiar to you, that the Lord saved a people out of the land of
Egypt, but afterwards destroyed those who had no faith. And
angels - those who did not keep the position originally assigned
to them, but deserted their own proper abode - He reserves in
ever lasting bonds, in darkness, in preparation for the judgement
of the great day. So also Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbouring
towns in the same manner, having been guilty of gross fornication
and having gone astray in pursuit of unnatural vice, are now
before us as a specimen of the fire of the Ages in the punishment
which they are undergoing."

Jude 1:10 continues ...…. "Yet these same men
are abusive in matters of which they know nothing, and in things
which, like irrational animals, they understand instinctively, in
all these they corrupt themselves. Alas for them; for they have
followed in the steps of Cain; for the sake of gain they have
rushed on headlong in the evil ways of Balaam; and have perished
in rebellion like that of Korah! These men are like - sunken
rocks that will cause you to become shipwrecked - and are those
who devour your charity and benevolent love, unrestrained
by fear while caring only for themselves; clouds without water,
driven away by the winds; trees that cast their fruit, barren,
doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, foaming out their
own shame; wandering stars, for whom is reserved dense darkness
of age-long duration."
It was also about these
that Enoch, who belonged to the seventh generation from Adam,
prophesied, saying, "The Lord comes, attended by myriads
of His people, to execute judgement upon all, and to convict all
the ungod ly of all the ungodly deeds which in their ungodliness
they have committed, and of all the hard words which they,
ungodly sinners as they are, have spoken against Him. These men
are murmurers, ever bemoaning their lot. Their lives are guided
by their evil passions, and their mouths are full of big,
boastful words, while they treat individual men with admiring
reverence for the sake of the advantage they can gain. But as for
you, my dearlyloved friends, remember the words that before now
were spoken by the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ-- how they
declared to you, "In the last times there shall be scoffers,
obeying only their own ungodly passions." These are those
who cause divisions. They are men of the world, wholly
unspiritual."

They are blots on your love feasts, clouds without water. That
is what the King James edition tells us about people who change
the laws to suit themselves and men who corrupt truth in order to
take advantage of the poor and the pure.

Separation of church and state - what absolute nonsense. It is
just a devilish plot to justify sins and debauchery for the sake
of those warped perverted minds who want to control the world for
their own ends at the expense of all decency and Godly
honour.

Why can’t the church see it and why won’t she rise
up and condemn it. Isaiah 59:13 says, "In transgressing
and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God,
speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the
heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward,
and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street,
and equity cannot enter."
